The Connecticut Burn Center is one of our region’s signature medical services with staff and facilities dedicated solely to the treatment of burns and it is one of only 58 burn centers in the United States. The Burn Center is undergoing a $1.5 million renovation that will enhance the already exceptional care provided to burn patients. Watch the video about the Burn Center and the project on You Tube and visit our dedicated donation page to find out how you can help.
The Burn Center serves more than 550 inpatients and receives over 800 outpatient visits each year. The Center is recognized by the American College of Surgeons and the American Burn Association for meeting the most demanding national standards of burn care. To underscore its unique role as a statewide medical resource, the facility has recently been renamed “The Connecticut Burn Center.”
